I was just reading about this song not too long ago! Actually I was trying to find out who Lydia Pinkham was. I always see ads for Lydia Pinkham's Vegetable Compound when I'm reading old newspapers and I wondered if she was real. She was and she was "honored" in an American drinking song ("The Ballad of Lydia Pinkham") because her "women's tonic" became a favorite of men too, especially during Prohibition in the US. It was 40 proof! I don't know if it really relieved women of their ailments but I'm sure it made them forget for a while! The title was changed and the lyrics cleaned up but the basic premise was unchanged.

There are a whole lot of killers who do get parole. Killers who ended the lives of victims that we don't know, many of them fathers, mothers, sons, daughters and no doubt many of them great, talented, loving and loved people. I never opposed to any of these killers' paroles. So why would I oppose to Chapman's parole, just because he killed a guy who's music I happen to like? All these actions against Chapman's parole just make it look to me like John Lennon was worth more as a human being than all those other victims. And last time I checked, we were all supposed to be equal.

I didn't say thank God because John Lennon happens to be famous and I love his music. I'm not that shallow and star-struck. I said it because a little boy lost his father that night. And I would feel the same way about any cold-blooded murderer who took away somebody's loved one. I don't happen to know them all by name but believe me, I would.

The Record Industry has, to all intents and purposes, reverted to its dawn of Rock 'n' Roll model of the mid-1950s.

Back then people who listened to expensive classical box sets were heavily indulged by EMI, Decca, HMV etc. but had to pay for it.
Teenagers had to make do with 78s, and later 45s, and the rare LP release by one of their faves.
Now we're in 2014 and the expensive box set principal applies to pop music.

I mention all this because on November 3rd, it's a Monday, THE BASEMENT TAPES finally get released.

38 track versions (The Basement Tapes equivalent of going to the seaside and not going in the sea) are available on vinyl or CD.

The 138 track 6-CD version, i.e. a whopping 100 tracks more, is available for £111.

However, for this release I think I will be shelling out as (a) it's near my birthday (b) next to 'Smile' it's the most important musical release of the 21st Century and (c) there, mercifully, are no 1975 overdubs.

for me with the exception of YS they are all 10/10

due in a big way to the way they changed the musical horizon and culture of the time

I never understand the poor rating for Let It Be, brilliant tracks throughout that album   ;D

I love every Beatles album; only Yellow Submarine is disposable in my opinion. My ratings are only relative, because I do consider that some Beatles albums are better than others.

About the impact of each album that oldbrownshoe mentioned, I think it's an important factor, but I've mainly considered the quality (always according to my ears) of the actual content.

Agree. I wanted to say that some Ukranian units have a good support. At least in money. War is costly. Meanwhile people in Kiev live without hot water in the taps (or faucet, how it is in English?)

Tap in the UK, faucet in the US.

It's hard to see what's going on through all the propaganda. I thought the cold war was over but it doesn't look that way.

That is exactly why I doubted and didn't sign.
